Before I went on my car trip to San Diego, the WINs spent some time at the Katherine Landing campground outside of Bullhead City, AZ. While there we went on the short hike to Grapevine Canyon. It's located off Christmas Tree Pass Road, and contains one of the largest array of petroglyphs I've ever seen. They go on for a hundred yards or so. Some of them look pretty new, but some probably really are 800-1000 years old.
The weather lately has been crazy. As I write this, we're in the middle of a record-breaking heat wave, but then it was just the opposite.
After the hike, we drove up to the top of Christmas Tree Pass to see the unusual rock formations.
We're now at Lake Havasu City and went on a terrific hike yesterday down through Sara's Crack. It's a long slot canyon with some pretty scary descents.
This was the biggest drop. I went first so no one could take an embarrassing picture of me and put it on their blog. My sister Barbara decided to slide down. (Her blog is here.)
After going through the slot, you have to get back to the trailhead. Our half of the group decided to go over the mountain, but the other half decided to go around. Here's Barbara trying to persuade them to do it our way. We were right - they got back two hours after us!
Time for a "sister shot" for our father.
